250 narrowcase rear axle orientation info needed

I know, horizontal.... But I did not pay attention when I took the old bearings out. I am getting ready to put in a new bearing on the brake drum side of the rear hub. Between the bearings the axle which is shouldered becomes captive. I just realized that the axle is about 9mm longer (0.325 inches) ...

Re: Gray Cables?

I've never seen gray cables on a single, but I do use scooter cables when they fit.

Maybe check scooterworks in Chicago or other vintage Vespa parts sites.

Re: Shopping for front and rear tires

Does anyone know of a US distributor for ME22 tires?

It does not bode well for an American when every website the search engine returns is using the spelling "tyre".

I know they won't break in shipment, but the expense of the shipping could be as much as the tires.

Shopping for front and rear tires

I need a new set of 2.75-18 tires for my 250 narrow case, both front and rear. I'm located in the US. Nine out of 10 online ads I see in 2.75-18 tires are for dual purpose front/rear tires. The one exception I see is for an Avon Street Runner front tire. I'm looking for advice: Should I go with an A...

Re: First Ducati

You could post a picture here. If your Ducati is close to stock then the fenders and bodywork may help forum members to identify the model followed by which years it was produced. If you post the engine serial number, that too may help to narrow the year. We'll also be able to tell if yours is a wid...

Re: Mototrans VIN

The Mototrans section was closed so as to bring Mototrans posts into this main discussion group. A big concern was that posts in the Mototrans section would not get enough views to illicit replies being as it was separated from Italian-made Ducatis and required more effort and time from members to r...

Re: checking engine oil pressure

I simply started my engine for the first time with the cam cover off.

After a couple seconds oil came shooting out and I immediately shut the engine down.

Re: direct replacement 6 Volt rectifier for Monza

A friend of the forum named Robert Ostman was kind enough to point out some mistakes I made when I created a schematic for the regulator. I believe Robert's schematic changes to be accurate and an improvement on what I had done and I thank him for his contribution as it will benefit us all. You will...

Re: direct replacement 6 Volt rectifier for Monza

My schematic is a little bit wrong. There are a pair of high power diodes and a pair of low power diodes. I will try to publish an updated schematic tonight. There is a very high likelihood that if one of the diodes has failed, it will be one of the high power diodes. Those diodes are out of product...
